Foodie: Vanilla Cupcake Bakery + Awesome Haul + I WON A GIVEAWAY!

Today, my plan didn't go as expected so I decided to take advantage of where I am and went to Glorietta since I'm not that familiar with this location. I took advantage of the opportunity to explore! So I decided to do some shopping since we already received our 13th month pay. YAY! After shopping we got curious with this cupcake place called "Vanilla Cupcake Bakery". This bakery will soon have a branch at UP AyalaLand Technohub as well (it's where our office is located). Know more about this place and the stuffs I got for myself after the jump!

Upon entering the store, these yummy cupcakes will make you salivate. They have a wide range of variety from red velvet cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes and even salted caramel.

The best thing for me about this store is that it's very cozy and the interior is so cute and girly! The wallpapers and chandeliers are very colorful. They even have frames hanging on the wall with thoughtful motto in them.

Red Velvet Cupcake
Migs got his favorite red velvet cupcake. Though it doesn't stand a chance with the Cupcakes by Sonja's version, we really appreciated the cream cheese.

Salted Caramel Cheesecake
I'm really into salted caramels nowadays since it became available as ice cream flavor this year so I tried this one. It's so yummy! :)

Triple Chocolate Frappé
Migs ordered this Triple Chocolate Frappé and it tasted just like any other usual chocolate shakes.

Naughty Nutella Frappé
Now if you're planning to visit this store, just go for this one. Enough said. :)

Take-out cupcake box and container. Cute!
Overall, I think this place being built near my office will definitely sabotage my diet plan. Specially that Naughty Nutella! I can't get enough of it..

The Awesome Haul

Pair of Jeans from Forever 21
I bought a pair of grey pants from Forever 21 months ago and I loved it so I decided to buy another one. They're having a sale right now so instead of its usual price of Php 555, I just got it for Php 405 since I have an SM Advantage card. Awesome right?

Black Top from Forever 21
Yes it's black. My room have this really poor lighting and it's night already so I'm sorry about this photo. This is not on sale and I'm not sure if it's worth it but I just have to buy a top. That's all. 

Long Wallet from Forever 21
I need long wallets right now since I have to use something that will fit my humongous Samsung Galaxy S4 during lunch breaks. I just recently bought one from Bench which is in Hot Pink and I luckily spotted this one too. I'll alternately use the two so I won't be tired of the color. But I love this one's color and the material used is much better than Bench. Well, it should be because it's pricier.

Doll Shoes from 'Little Things She Needs'
I don't know what's with the VNC paper bag but these are from 'Little Things She Needs'. I was about to buy a nude doll shoe from Payless but it's not available anymore. Luckily, I saw these and instantly fell in love with them so I bought two for Php 1,199 instead of Php 700 each. I saved Php 200! Yay!

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation & MAC Matte Lipstick in Please Me
Finally.. My favorite part of this haul! The MAC products! These two have been on my list for the longest time now but I wasn't buying them specially the powder plus foundation because of mixed reviews on the internet. But I know that this curiosity must end somehow so I ended it with a purchase.

Just when I thought this day can't get any better, I received a Tweet from Vince of When in Manila that I won an Orange Boss Watch from a raffle I joined days ago. Yayy!! I already have a Christmas present for my husband. Thank you so much When in Manila and Hugo Boss for this awesome giveaway! I'm one happy girl today. :)

Reviews will follow. Have a great weekend! :)

I love the place too, perfect for some lolita photoshoot. cupcakes are totally in nowadays. there are also homemade cupcake sellers on instagram and they look delish too. I think i will go there at some time. There is also a cupcake shop named Kaye something in the district ayala mall in imus. its a little shop but its similar to VCB.
